I've got multiple PM's from people asking how to do this ever since I put in the FAQ that it was possible so thought I'd put it out here for others.


Some models of the HP 2710p notebook got sold in NZ with a hs2300 WWAN module which was a Vodafone locked Sierra Wireless MC8775. All that is required to unlock this is to reflash the radio firmware with generic Sierra Wireless firmware. Files and info required to do this can be found here.


If you have any of the following netbooks without a WWAN module installed then you can purchase them very cheaply from here unlocked for USD$59. Installation is pretty simple.

Hope this helps some folks.
